The animated series South Park took a harsh jab at Lizzo in ‘The End of Obesity,’ an episode that poked fun at the celebrity use of Ozempic.

The famous animated series episode airing currently on Paramount+ shows Eric Cartman going to a doctor and asking for Ozempic to lose weight

However, he can’t afford it, and his health insurance won’t cover it as the drug is made for diabetes patients. But his doctor promises to prescribe something else for him.

“I’m going to write you a prescription for Lizzo. She’s a really good singer who talks about body positivity and just being happy with the way you look. I want you to listen to Lizzo five times a day, and watch her videos just before bedtime. I’m afraid you’ll have to be on Lizzo for the rest of your life.”

In response, an irate Cartman said, “Poor people get body positivity; rich people get Ozempic!”

Soon after the episode aired, Lizzo posted a video reacting to the episode, specifically a scene advertising the new product, Lizzo.

As the “South Park” episode spirals out of control, it shows the local moms having “drug parties” to share the weight-loss drugs with each other, clad in crop tops to show off their new physiques.

Lizzo is regarded as a trailblazer of the body positivity movement, which urges people to choose self-love and celebration regardless of size or shape. More recently, though, the singer began losing weight and is now leaning toward “body neutrality,” she told The New York Times.

Since ending her Special Tour, the Yitty shapewear founder told the New York Times that she has been dieting and prioritizing exercise

“I’ve been methodical, losing weight very slowly,” she revealed.

Ozempic is a drug for diabetes that has become trendy for weight loss among the rich.
